Full Plot

Tara B. True is a flight attendant who makes a weekly swing through New York, Miami, and Los Angeles. In each city, she has a man: Edward, older and wealthy; Johnny, a beach bum with gambling debts; and, Davey, a rock musician on the cusp of success. Tara is a free spirit, faithful to each man in her own way, and so stunning that she dresses in a wig and ill-fitting uniform while she's working so men won't harass her constantly. The low-life whom Johnny is in debt to figures out a way to use Tara to help him execute a daring in-flight robbery. But will Tara stand by helplessly, or is superchick ready for action?

Johnny: You're something else, woman, and that's no lie. Tara B. True: The only place there's no lies between a man and a woman is in bed. Johnny: Get yourself ready for some truth. Tara B. True: A little truth does go a long way. Tara B. True: They kid me about being the prude of the airlines. But, with my shape and measurements, I don't dare wear my uniform form-fitting. I did once, and even the automatic pilot made a pass at me. Tara B. True: Last one in bed gets no head! Tara B. True: I never was a superpatriot, but there comes a time when you have to lie down and be counted. Mayday: To get into show business, honey, you have to show your business! Sims: [very stoned] Get thee beneath me, subconscious! Sims: A few sticks of dynamite grass, a gallon of wine, and a chick like you. [laughs] What more could a man in a clothes closet full of clothes ask for, huh? Young Policeman: Isn't this illegal search and seizure, and illegal entry without a warrant? Old Policeman: You watch too much television. Biker: Hey man, like, why don't we just knock off the motorcycle movie talk and, uh, gangbang her? Tara B. True: It's sickies like you that give Hollywood a bad name! Tara B. True: You old pervert! What would your mother say? Igor Smith: My ma? Let's ask her. [calling upstairs] Hey ma, we got another one! Ma: [Off camera] That's a good boy, sonny. Don't fight! Tara B. True: Wow. Someone must have dropped acid in his Geritol. Garrick: And to think someday she's gonna be somebody's mother.
